Fairy Wings....

When I purchased four digi images by Sylvia Zet, I had no idea how wonderful they would be to color. They are also available in rubber. I think I'm having just too much fun! Here is another card I've made this time using "Silver Fairy" from her newest collection!

I've also done a little watching of Suzanne Dean's new coloring video using this same image. I have so much to learn and love to try different techniques. I love how this one turned out, so pretty in blues and beige's.

So this is the second stitching card that I found while digging through a box looking for something else. What a happy find that was!

Here is the card I came up with using my original stitched panel...

A little bit of of a closer look at my Fairy...

I gave the angle a bit of a turn...

Moving on to the inside of the card...

Up close and personal view of the Fairy on the inside upper panel of my card...(please don't look too closely, I made a typo and spelled the word "if" "iff" - sheesh!!!)

I have put my Magnolia Doohickey Flourish die to good use on this card...
